Last Minute Flights Tips

We'd like to share some top tips and tricks for finding the cheapest last minute flight deals with any airline. You'll want to consider which destinations you'd like to fly to, what dates you can fly and the time of your flight. Follow our tips below to find the right flight for you.

Flexible Destinations

A top tip when booking last minute flights is too open-minded about where you plan to travel. You'll likely find cheaper deals by changing the destination you travel to. If you're looking to spend time catching a tan on the beach, why not fly over to Bali or Fiji?

Flexible Dates

Got some space in your diary? It's essential to be flexible with the dates you plan to travel as you can find some great deals on last minute flights. You may save some coins by flying a day before or a day after then you had originally planned.

Night Flights

Another trick when buying last minute flights is to look for flights that fly at night as they tend to be cheaper. This is because night flights are seen as less desirable than morning and afternoon flights. If you're a business traveller we advise that you look at our red-eye flights. These flights depart late at night and arrive early morning the following day, meaning that you won't miss a working day.
